Bookmark and Share

Kate Spelman will serve as Moderator for a panel discussing “Protection for Fashions and Designs in the Age of 3D Printing and Star Athletica” at the Intellectual Property Owners (IPO) Association’s 45th Annual meeting on Monday, September 18. The presentation will take place from 4-5:30 p.m. and will cover recent developments in case law and computer technology that have led to rapid changes in the way: 1) businesses and consumers create and use products; and 2) copyright and other forms of intellectual property can protect product designs. The panelists will examine the challenges these changes create for companies in a range of industries and explore strategies in the areas of product design, marketing, IP protection and enforcement. The IPO’s Copyright Law & Anti-Piracy and Industrial Designs Committee, which Spelman co-chairs, organized the panel. The annual meeting will take place from September 17-19 at the Marriott Marquis in San Francisco. For more information or to register, visit the event website.
